Rogers Public Education Foundation Grants

George Merwin Grant


In his will, local outdoor enthusiast George Merwin left a portion of his estate to the Rogers Public Education Foundation with the directive that the money should “provide teacher grants in the area of outdoor education.” While this grant was active, the Foundation distributed a total of $30,000 to local teachers in Mr. Merwin's name.
